124. The fourth standard, WHICH IS THE STANDARD OF EPHRAIM'S CAMP, FROM THE ASPECT OF THE LIVING CREATURES IS THE FACE OF man. FROM THE FOUR ANGELS, IT IS Raphael, AND HE TRAVELS ON the west, SINCE ALL THESE ARE ASPECTS OF MALCHUT. With it is healing, SINCE on the side of man, the uppermost Judgment is contained in it and it is healed. He grasps the horns of the ox when it wishes to bring him to the great depth, and he binds them so they will not consume the world by fire. Following this, a thin small voice abides. Here the matter is very quiet, so that no syllable is heard.
125. On that side, IN MALCHUT, something rests, MEANING CHASSADIM OF THE RIGHT COLUMN, and something rises, MEANING THE ILLUMINATION OF CHOCHMAH THAT IS IN THE LEFT COLUMN THAT SHINES WHEN RISING FROM BELOW UPWARD. The sun, ZEIR ANPIN, is gathered to illuminate this area, WHICH IS MALCHUT. Therefore, IT IS WRITTEN: "When you blow an alarm (Heb. truah)" (Bemidbar 10:5) on the south side. WHICH IS THE RIGHT COLUMN IN THE ILLUMINATION OF THE CENTRAL COLUMN, AS MENTIONED. However, here IN MALCHUT, neither exist, NEITHER T'KIAH NOR T'RUAH. HE ASKS: Why THE BLOWING OF THE T'ruah? HE RESPONDS: it subdues the north side, WHICH IS THE LEFT COLUMN, IN ORDER TO UNITE IT WITH THE RIGHT, SO IT WILL SHINE FROM NOW ON ONLY FROM BELOW UPWARD. Therefore, the north side is the rear OF ALL THE CAMPS, AS IT IS WRITTEN: "THE REARWARD OF ALL THE CAMPS" (IBID. 25). THAT IS BECAUSE IT IS ESTABLISHED THROUGH MALCHUT. THEREFORE, THE STANDARD OF EPHRAIM, WHICH IS MALCHUT, TRAVELS BEFORE THE LEFT COLUMN, WHICH IS THE CAMP OF DAN. AND THE CAMP OF DAN TRAVELS LAST.
126. Come and behold: there are two trumpets, since they are on the two sides we mentioned, from the east, WHICH IS THE CENTRAL COLUMN, and from the south, WHICH IS THE RIGHT COLUMN. They are prepared to break the Judgments and subdue them IN THE SECRET OF THE T'RUAH, AS MENTIONED NEARBY. They are therefore from silver, WHICH IS CHESED, and hence, "also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days...you shall blow with the trumpets" (Bemidbar 10:10). This is not specific, which means both above and below IN THIS WORLD. Praised are Yisrael, whom the Holy One, blessed be He, wishes to have honor, and He gave them the highest part above all other nations. The Holy One, blessed be He, praises Himself for them with the praises WITH WHICH THEY PRAISE HIM. This is what is written: "and said to me, 'You are My servant, Yisrael'" (Yeshayah 49:3).
